uber eats charges fees and delivering

When you place an order on Uber Eats, the fees you pay help cover delivery costs.

Orders delivered with Uber Eats may include the following fees.

– Delivery Fee: Delivery fees vary for each restaurant based on your location and availability of nearby delivery people. You’ll always know the delivery fee before selecting a restaurant.

– Service Fee: The Service Fee equals 15% of your order’s subtotal and is calculated on the amount before any promotions or discounts are applied. There’s a $2.50 minimum, but it’s not more than $4.50. The fee does not apply to restaurants that deliver their own orders.

– Small Order Fee: A Small Order Fee may apply when an order’s subtotal is less than a certain amount. The Small Order Fee varies by city, but is either $2 for subtotals less than $10 or $3 for subtotals less than $15. You can remove this fee by adding more items to your cart.

– Delivery adjustment fee: A delivery adjustment fee refers to an update you made after placing your order- like changing your address. It helps to pay your delivery person for extra time and effort.
If you changed your address, the delivery adjustment and items in your cart may be subject to tax based on your new delivery location.

These fees work together to help cover delivery costs and keep delivery people on the road so your food can arrive quickly and reliably.

To honor Black History Month, Uber Eats is committed to generating support for Black-owned restaurants as part of Uber’s broader ongoing racial and social equity initiatives. We believe that food is both the history and the heart of culture and that these local businesses help move our communities forward.

We invite you to join us in supporting the following initiatives:

Uber Eats x Black Businesses Matter Matching Fund

For Black History Month, we’ve pledged that for every order placed with a Black-owned restaurant, Uber will donate $1 to the Black Businesses Matter Matching Fund (for a total of up to US$250,000). Uber will also donate an additional US$250,000 to the fund, to be distributed through grants to Black-owned restaurants in the US and Canada. Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson, in partnership with the Project Bento charity and select regional chefs, will choose which restaurants receive a grant to help support their business during the COVID-19 crisis.

As the pandemic continued throughout 2020, we announced four key actions to more aggressively tackle the challenge of climate change. It’s our responsibility as the largest mobility platform in the world to reduce emissions and help drive a green recovery in our cities.

We’re excited to kick off 2021 with more actions to increase clean mobility options for riders, drivers and cities.

Expanding Uber Green 

First, we’re expanding Uber Green, our EV and hybrid ride option, to 1,400+ new North American cities and towns. Riders in cities like Washington D.C., Austin, Calgary, Houston, Miami, New York City, Tucson, Winnipeg and hundreds more can now choose a greener ride. Drivers also receive an extra $0.50 directly from a $1 rider surcharge for every Uber Green trip completed, with the other half going to support EV adoption.

We’re also integrating Uber Green into our membership service, Uber Pass, so that Pass members will receive 10% off Green trips just as they would with a standard ride.

Helping Drivers Transition to EVs 

Next, we’re announcing key updates to our partnerships with vehicle manufacturers, charging network providers, and EV rental and fleet companies to help drivers access more savings and make an equitable transition to electric vehicles: 

  • Avis EV rentals – Starting in Los Angeles, drivers now can use a zero-emissions vehicle through Avis’ new, affordable EV rental program. We’ll expand this program nationwide in 2021.
  • Ample Modular Battery Swapping for EVs – Starting this month, drivers in San Francisco can rent a vehicle with Ample technology and quickly swap their electric vehicle batteries in mere minutes, then return to the road fully charged.
  • Expanded EV charging discounts with EVgo – Our partnership with EVgo is providing exclusive savings for drivers on Uber’s platform across 800+ U.S. locations, making it more affordable to access out-of-home EV charging.

Investing in our Multimodal Network 

In our drive toward zero emissions, we’re continuing to expand our offerings of sustainable alternatives to the personal car. This will help cities avoid a return to traffic gridlock and pollution once people feel safe to move again. Today we’re announcing:

  • Journey Planning is now available in 10+ more cities, including Atlanta, Auckland, Brisbane, Buenos Aires, Guadalajara, Philadelphia, Rome, Bangalore, Chennai, and Mumbai.  This means you can plan your entire public transit journey, from swiping through real-time schedules to walking directions to and from transit stations, directly in your Uber app in more than 40 cities globally.
  • Uber and Transit is rolling out in Mexico City and London, having been previously available in Sydney and Chicago. This feature empowers you to lower your emissions and reduce congestion by planning a multimodal trip, combining UberX with walking directions and city bus, subway, or train connections.

New Partnerships

Overcoming the climate change challenge, especially in the aftermath of COVID-19, will require unprecedented resources, best practice sharing, and partnership between government and industry leaders. That’s why we’ve recently joined two initiatives:
